Papa John's International, Inc. ranks as the third largest pizza chain in the United States, trailing only Pizza Hut (a division of YUM! Brands, Inc.) and Domino's, Inc. The company has built a chain of more than 2,800 pizza delivery and carry-out restaurants operating under the trademark "Papa John's" in 49 states, the District of Columbia, and 20 international markets. Approximately 570 of the outlets are company owned, with the remainder being franchised. The firm also franchises about 115 Perfect Pizza restaurants in the United Kingdom. After the opening of its first store in 1985, Papa John's grew rapidly through the late 1990s before settling in as a more mature company in the following decade. In a highly competitive segment of the restaurant industry, Papa John's has managed to carve out a highly profitable niche by offering a very limited menu consisting of pizza, breadsticks, cheese sticks, chicken strips, chicken wings, and canned or bottled soft drinks; and by using high-quality ingredients and touting them in its trademark slogan "Better Ingredients. Better Pizza."





Papa John's Copycat Recipe

Pizza Dough
1 tablespoon of melted butter
lots of cinnamon
1/2 cup + 1/3 cup of flour
1/2 cup of white sugar
1/3 cup of brown sugar
2 tablespoons of shortening
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil

1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
3 tablespoons of milk
3/4 teaspoon of vanilla

Roll out the pizza dough on a pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Perforate pizza dough with the dough. Brush melted butter over the pizza dough and completely cover the dough with cinnamon. (If you like less cinnamon you don't have to go as crazy with it). Prepare the topping by mixing all the ingredients using a fork. Sprinkle all over the cinnamon dough. Pop into the oven at 460 degrees for 10-12 minutes. While pizza is cooking, make the icing. Mix all the ingredients together. If the icing is too thick, add extra milk. When pizza is done, drizzle icing all over the pizza.
